Michael Smith: Welcome back to The Box interviews. I’m here with Ray Camden, developer advocate for IBM, and a long time fan of ColdFusion, and he’s speaking on, what are you speaking on, Ray? It sounded like a very interesting topic about OpenWhisk.
Raymond Camden: Yeah. So I’m speaking about Serverless with Apache OpenWhisk, which is a project that IBM is heavily involved with, as well.
Michael Smith: And for those who haven’t understood what OpenWhisk is, because it sounds like, from what I’ve read, it could do a number of things. Some of which are incredibly powerful. Ray, what exactly is it?
Raymond Camden: Let me back up and talk about Serverless first, because I kind of avoided the topic for a while myself, because I knew the name was kind of stupid, and even more so than My Cloud, you know, Serverless, I knew, was the exact opposite, unless they were running on imaginary numbers, or something, but the best way to think of it is function as a service.
